Academic ADL Co-Lab’s Database of Repositories

New from the Academic ADL Co-Lab is this searchable database of existing learning object repositories. Most of these are not software you could download to run your ‘own’ repository but instead existing institutional or subject-based repositories in which you *might* be able to participate (which raises the entirely sticky issue of ‘how many repositories do we actually need?’ but that’s for another post!)

In particular pay attention to the ‘Advanced Search’ feature – it seems to confirm the same set of repositories that support RSS as I have previously discovered, but also lets you do some neat things like find out which repository projects support the OAI Harvesting Protocol, or which ones support Global Unique Identifiers (GUIDs). – SWL
